It depends on what it says in the ingredients, but I don't see why they wouldn't be vegetarian. Did you read somewhere that they weren't?

Huh? Why does B12 make something not veg? And what is vitamin water?

Carnation Instant Breakfast Ingredients (dark chocolate):

NONFAT MILK, SUGAR, MALTODEXTRIN, COCOA PROCESSED WITH ALKALI, LACTOSE, AND LESS THAN 2% OF DICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, SOY LECITHIN, CARAMEL COLOR, CARRAGEENAN, SODIUM ALUMINOSILICATE, MAGNESIUM HYDROXIDE, SODIUM ASCORBATE (VITAMIN C), VITAMIN E ACETATE, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, NIACINAMIDE, FERRIC ORTHOPHOSPHATE (IRON), ZINC OXIDE, CALCIUM PANTOTHENATE (PANTOTHENIC ACID), COPPER GLUCONATE, MANGANESE SULFATE, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B6), THIAMIN MONONITRATE, PHYLLOQUINONE (VITAMIN K), BIOTIN, FOLIC ACID, VITAMIN B12.



Ovaltine Ingredients (chocolate):

Sugar, cocoa processed with alkali, whey, salt, carrageenan, mono and diglycerides, artificial flavor, colored with yellow no. 6, red no. 40, and blue no. 1.



Both of those look vegetarian to me. Neither one is suitable for a vegan diet though.

B12 comes from bacteria. B12 does not mean something is not vegetarian. It would be pretty expensive to "suck" the b12 out of meat, lol. Much easier to culture it with bacteria.
